Healthy Vegan Apple Pie (Gluten Free)

Apple Pie that is vegan and gluten free!  Last night I had the urge to make crock pot applesauce.  Just thinking about it reminds me of the applesauce my great grandmother used to make when I was little.

After I gathered all the ingredients, made the apple sauce, and tasted the final product, I immediately thought to make a homemade apple pie.  Here in Dallas today, its cold and overcast.  Just perfect for staying in and enjoying some comfort food.


Vegan Apple Pie


I re-vamped this recipe to make it gluten free as well as paleo friendly.  It’s super easy!  I made the apples in the crock pot, but you can probably to it in the instant pot as well.

      1. Hi Melissa, Still a little confused on your instructions. So no baking at all with the grain free option, not even with the topping? And for the other crust option, bake 30-35 min? I want to make this for guests so wanted to be 100% clear before I do :) Thanks!
        1. There is no baking of the crust itself. However, once you add the apple mixture you will need to bake. I hope that makes sense?
            1. The crust has to bake by itself first for 9 minutes. Then after you add the crumb topping, you bake for another 5 minutes. Just to give the topping time to crisp up. :)
      2. Hello!! I am looking to make a peach pie, cobbler or crust. Do you think I could use frozen peaches? not slow cooked though just straight from bag. Also what do you think about coconut, oat or spelt fours?
      3. i have my applesauce cooking now. I have a question though do I bake the pie and crust for 25-30 minutes and the add topping and bake for another 25-30 minutes? Or is the whole bake time 25-30 minutes. Thanks!
      4. Made the grain-version for Thanksgiving. It was great. Just wish the crust was not that dry. I did not use any maple syrup in the filling (apples, cinnamon, and gloves make it sweet enough). Thank you for all your recipes!
      5. This looks delicious! I want to make it over the weekend. I just need one clarification though (sorry if you've been asked this many times, I just couldn't figure it out from the questions above) - if I'm making the grain crust, do I bake the crust by itself first for 25 minutes, THEN add the filling and topping and bake another 25-30 minutes? Or do I bake the whole thing for 25-30 minutes? I think many questions above are for the grain-free crust, but I'm using the grain crust, so I'm wondering if there's a difference... Thanks!!!
            1. Thank you Melissa. I made this yesterday and it was DELICIOUS! As was your pumpkin pie I made last week. Thank you for sharing your wonderful recipes :)
      6. Hi Melissa, I made this last night with the grain free crust. (I did not see a grain option) It is delicious, but the crust was a little soggy from all the apple liquid. I baked the crust for 9 minutes, let it cool and then added the apple mixture and baked for 15 minutes (5 didn't seem long enough for the crumble to bake). Next time I may bake the crust a little longer. It was still great and we still ate half the pie!
        1. Glad you liked it, but sad it was a little soggy. :( Did you scoop the apple mixture out with a slotted spoon? That may help next time if you hadn't tried it already.
